Eric S (it) wrote: If you like Heather Graham and/or Robert Downey Jr., you should check this one out. However, this film has it's problems. The story and dialogue seems to go nowhere, and the film pretty much falls flat. I do think there are moments that allow humor from Robert Downey Jr.'s character who's an actor/musician that is clearly all over the place in many ways. When Carla(Graham) and Lou(Wagner) meet outside an apartment building(brownstone) in Soho(NYC), they start to chat about the guy they are waiting for and the coincidences are just too close.Heather Graham was my reason for watching any of this, and there is a scene or two worth seeing if you like her as well.
Edith N (de) wrote: The Face Worth More Than a Fleet of Destroyers I knew someone, years ago, who thought that it couldn't be propaganda if it was American. I have no idea how she developed this view, given that she'd already seen [i]The Sands of Iwo Jima[/i] when we discussed it. (We will not be discussing that here, I promise you.) I know this, because we sat next to each other at the time. And both sides in World War II made an awful lot of propaganda. There are all those cartoons wherein Popeye is fighting the Japanese or Bugs Bunny is taking on Joseph Goebbels, personally, in the Black Forest. (And why couldn't we have had one of those on this disc?) By the time [i]Mrs. Miniver[/i] was made, it wasn't even controversial in the United States to come out so strongly supportive of the UK and so opposed to Germany, as it would have been one short year earlier. But it's worth noting that certain of the studios did start making propaganda pieces even before Pearl Harbor. Mrs. Miniver (Greer Garson) is just an ordinary British housewife. She has a loving husband (Walter Pidgeon) and several charming children, including Vincent (Richard Ney), or "Vin." Vin is a dreadful bore who has just started at Oxford and thinks he knows everything, though he falls head-over-heels in love with Carol Beldon (Teresa Wright), granddaughter of Lady Beldon (Dame May Whitty), despite all of his talk against aristocrats. When World War II starts, Vin joins the RAF. Clem is called upon to take his boat to a little French town called Dunkirk. A German pilot is shot down in the vicinity, and Mrs. Miniver ends up being captured by him--and then capturing him in turn when his wounds get the better of him. All in all, the Minivers handle the perils of war with quiet dignity, just as those in charge wanted us to believe everyone in the UK was doing under extreme provocation. There was even time for a flower show. Life did indeed go on in hundreds, thousands of little British towns. Millions of people listened to the planes overhead and waited for the bombs to fall. Sons, husbands, brothers, sweethearts enlisted and went off to war. And of course hundreds of little ships helped evacuate men from that tiny beach in France. Not everyone looked like Walter Pidgeon while doing it, but of course most of them sounded an awful lot more British. I kind of imagined scenarios of the day Mr. Miniver came over from America, possibly during World War I. (Pidgeon himself was born in New Brunswick.) Either way, though, I can definitely see the propaganda effect to the film, the sense of life going on. And who wouldn't want to believe they were fighting for King, Country, and Women Who Look Like Greer Garson? It probably also had the effect of convincing Americans that the British were going through a tough time, and we should all fight for the safety and support of our allies and their women, who look like Greer Garson. Of course, it's also worth noting that the Minivers lived in the country and were probably substantially better off than a lot of people in London. They still seem to be eating pretty well, though that would probably change as the war went on. Certainly they would be doing less driving as gas and rubber became more scarce. We only get a couple of scenes of the placid life they led before the war, and I'm not sure it's really enough to establish a serious difference, especially given how calmly they can take the loss of the food the German soldier ate. Presumably, there wasn't much in the way of rationing yet, because it's only supposed to be funny when Vin eats his father's breakfast. And the Minivers drive that enormous car about; I think it probably would have been better for them if they hadn't, but that's another discussion. And while I think we're supposed to recognize how much things change because Mrs. Miniver can't get a hat like the one she buys at the beginning in wartime, modern audiences wouldn't necessarily know that. No, I suspect, should they be expected to know how right Vin is even when he's being insufferable. It's a place where he and Lady Beldon agree. War is a time when social orders shift. Thirty years before this movie was made, the son of an architect could not aspire to a daughter of the aristocracy. It's not that she wouldn't have married a commoner; it's that the commoner would have had to have had great sacks of cash to be considered, and the Minivers were merely upper middle class. World War I began to make the difference, and today, a Prince of England is married to a commoner without as much fuss as would have been made even if his father had done it. (His step-grandmother is an Hon., though what that made his stepmother I don't know. But she's not producing any heirs, after all.) Now, I think said commoner's family does have money. But one of the changes World War II wrought was that, for the minor nobility, their commoners didn't have to anymore. They could be, say, the children of architects.
